Ruth Bancroft Sculpture in the Garden Show

Viewing sculpture in a beautiful garden – the perfect way to spend a weekend. The Ruth Bancroft Garden, a preservation project of the Garden Conservatory in Walnut Creek California, currently has their annual Sculpture in the Garden show. This garden plans and hosts some great events throughout the year. During the events you usually get to tour both the public dry garden and the more floriferous garden surrounding the home. If you’re around the bay area on July 8th – you should try their evening Sunset Social – Art & Wine in the garden with wine tasting, food and live music for just $15. Admission other days is only $10. My good friend Karen and I decided to hit the opening weekend that boasts a crafts marketplace plus artists attendance.

Forgive me for not capturing all the artists’ names (they’re listed on the events page and I’m happy to update this post) and for doing a “middle of the hot afternoon” tour which means the lighting didn’t flatter these great works. Over 2 posts, I still won’t cover half the pieces – beautiful show.
